A pair of dance music giants, R3HAB and Laidback Luke, join forces on their debut collaboration, “Weekend On A Tuesday,” via CYB3RPVNK, a dynamic track showcasing Luke’s groovy house style with R3HAB’s slapping basslines.
Talking about the song, R3HAB shares, “After many months and many versions back and forth, Luke and I are excited to share ‘Weekend On A Tuesday’ with the world. This is a song about breaking away from the norm and choosing to follow your own beat. Sometimes you need to bring the energy to the start of the week – this song is made to get the party started, and we are happy to be part of the launch of anotherblock platform.”
While Laidback Luke says, “I’m super thrilled to have finally landed this track with R3HAB. Him and I go way back! R3HAB came with this amazing bassline, and I poured a bit more of a housey sound over it. And let’s be honest, ‘Weekend On A Tuesday’ is how it often feels for us touring DJs. And it’s so exciting we combine this track with the launch of anotherblock.”
“Weekend On A Tuesday” also launches anotherblock, a transparent music royalty NFT marketplace, where each and every holder of “Weekend On A Tuesday” NFT will get a share of streaming revenues from the single.
It works like this: 250 NFTs, each giving the holder a 0.02% share of the streaming revenues. Via anotherblock, holders can see what their NFT is worth and expected payouts.
